We did the high tide Nauset marsh tour. The guide was great and told us all about the marsh and wildlife. The highlight of the tour for us was getting to see the Harbor Seals!

Nauset Marsh High Tide tour with Jonathon. Excellent tour. Jonathon's navigational knowledge of the marsh is amazing. As a tourist it would be impossible to navigate yourself. Loved paddling through the group of seals. Saw lots of migrating birds.

We had a great afternoon. Jonathan is interesting, informative and went out of his way to make sure that we included (even the less experienced of us). It was a fantastic experience and we would highly recommend one of these tours!

Jonathan was a great guide, knowledgable, flexible and relaxed. We had a tremendous time paddling through the marsh and then got to swim in the ocean with the seals (in a place protected from the sharks!). Would do it again and again.
